September 8, 2020 (Los Angeles, CA) – On the season premiere of ET Digital's "Unfiltered," Tia Mowry opens up about her experience with racism as a young actress and how she is striving to make a difference for a new generation. "Unfiltered” uses beauty to foster a conversation that goes more than skip deep. The first two seasons are available here and previous guests include: Raven-Symone, Hannah Brown, Skai Jackson, Jeannie Mai, Jazz Jennings and Melissa Fumero.

 

Mowry said, “...It was around Sister, Sister days and the show was extremely popular, we were beating, like, in the ratings Friends around that time. So my sister and I wanted to be on the cover of this very popular magazine and it was a teenage magazine. We were told that we couldn’t be on the cover of the magazine because we were Black and we would not sell.”

 

Watch as Mowry emotionally discusses the affect this experience still has on her today and the empowering words she shares with her children – Cree (age 9) and Cairo (age 2) – so they will never feel less than because of the color of their skin.
